 Q400 - measurement system for 3D deformation analysis at material tests and component tests


With the Q400 system, the 2D or 3D deformation analysis is performed in a precise, fast and user-friendly manner. The modular system is also characterized by the high flexibility of the optical setup and  thus can be optimally adapted to the application. The intuitive measuring software Istra4D provides, in addition to the spatial measured values displacement, deformation, strain, coordinates, etc. also the corresponding measuring accuracy for each measured value.
Measuring principle:
One or more digital cameras record the deformation process. The object surface has a stochastic (natural or prepared) pattern ("speckle pattern"). The images are automatically evaluated using subpixel-accurate digital image correlation algorithms. This assigns the local surface pattern to the camera pixels and measures 3D coordinates, 3D displacements, 3D deformations and surface strains components.
